I just bought a Penomet pump, it actually showed up about an hour ago. I should preface this by saying that I am 100% new to pumping, be it water or air. I just got out of the shower where I played around with it and I'm undecided. I guess I was expecting a crazy pump and to be "wowed" after the first use, but that wasn't the case. I actually probably over did it. I got the Premium since it came with the full range of "gaiters". I used the 60 (lowest) and it took a couple times to find a spot were it was relatively comfortable. My dick looked big in the pump, but that of course is mostly due to the light refraction.
I trimmed before I tried it to make sure there was a decent seal and it was strong enough to hold it's own weight; however when I tried the stretches they suggested, the seal didn't hold. I'll have to try shaving or using vaseline or something next time. I will say that just by letting it hang there I definitely felt a good stretch, so that definitely will do something for length.
In regards to girth, this was my first time pumping ever, and as I mentioned before I was expecting a decent pump. After a few 1-3 minute sessions (while getting comfortable) I did one for about 5-7 minutes. After the last session I did notice discoloration but it quickly went away after a massage (this maybe normal for pumping, I have no idea). I noticed a little bit of a pump, but nothing crazy. I guess based on some of the other pumping videos (porn) I've seen I was expecting a monster. Anyway, I jelqed immediately after for about 5-10 minutes and it felt pretty good. After playing with myself I could definitely tell there was a difference, but I couldn't quantify it. My one worry however, which is why I think I may have over done it, is that under my glans on one side there was a bit of swelling (which may be what people call fluid retention). I was able to gently massage most of it away, but it has me a little worried.
So next time:
- I'm not going to go for "max pressure" even with the 60. I'm going to actually start slow and probably do a couple sets at low pressure.
- I'm going to do a better inspection after pumping to see if the fluid retention is from the pumping directly or the pumping + pretty intense jelqing after.
In regards to Penomet vs. Bathmate, one of the main driving factors for me was the size of the pump. I've read a lot of reviews stating that the bathmate has a huge disparity between size of the Hercules and Goliath models with a lot of people growing out of the Hercules quickly (I guess the X30 is a very similar size as well). So I purchased the Penomet (can fit 9.5" length X 7.5" girth) since that should be plenty to get me to my 8" x 6" goal and only need one pump. Even at my current size (6.5" x 4.5" girth) the Penomet felt like a good size.
Hope this helps!Starting Stats (March 10, 2012):
